Trump clashes with 'rude, terrible' journalist in extraordinary exchange

Trump clashes with 'rude, terrible' journalist in extraordinary exchange

During his post-midterms news conference on Wednesday, he called some journalists rude, told some to sit down and accused a PBS reporter of posing a racist question when she asked about white nationalists. To Jim Acosta, as he tried to explain the migrant caravan to the president: 'Thank you for telling me that, I appreciate it.'11.

President Donald Trump continued his belligerent attacks on the media during his first actual press conference in over a year. Shouting over Trump's attempts to move on to another reporter, Acosta managed to ask a question about the Russian Federation investigation. "I don't know why you'd say that, that's such a racist question", Trump told Alcindor, who happens to be African-American.

Widely viewed as a referendum on Mr Trump's presidency, the election results offered a split decision that revealed deep tensions in the American electorate.

Some reporters pushed him on whether his campaign rhetoric on migrants from central America was divisive - and on developments in a federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and any coordination between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

He said the investigation is a "hoax", before stepping away from the podium.

Irony of Iran sanctions and falling oil prices
In addition to hitting Iran's energy sector , Monday's sanctions will target Iran's shipping, shipbuilding and financial sectors. China , Greece, India , Italy, Japan, South Korea , Taiwan , and Turkey are allowed to continue to import Iranian oil .

When Acosta tried to follow up with a question about Russia, Trump replied: "CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them".

Trump says his vigorous campaigning stopped a so-called "blue wave", "if there ever was such a thing".

"I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN", he added. You rudely interrupted him. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee Sanders is awful and the way you treat other people ... you shouldn't treat people that way".

ACOSTA: Excuse me, I was going to ask one other question.

Trump showed why he rarely does these press conferences when his feet were held to the fire by reporters asking about racist rhetoric, Republicans losing the House, and the Russian Federation investigation (he called it a "hoax" despite our entire intelligence apparatus saying otherwise).

The removals took place in late September and early October. "We have 100 Senators, 49 Democrats and I never see him", Trump said. Trump received the type of jobs report that any president would envy heading into the final days before the midterm elections.

The exchange between Trump and CNN's professional provocateur quickly escalated, which ended up with Trump embarrassing Acosta. "You run CNN. And if you did it well, your ratings will be much higher".

That brought Acosta to his feet again.

Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh said the confrontation was "a microcosm of the media's relationship with Trump from the get-go".

He also said, "When you report fake news, as CNN does a lot, you are an enemy of the people".
